A south suburban mom who wasn’t able to give her kids Christmas presents is receiving help from another mom who understands her struggle.
Tabitha Wingler tried to sell her TV online to get money to buy her four kids Christmas gifts. The Chicago Heights mom was unable to sell the TV, but after reading her story, Eileen Howorth sent her a message.
The two talked about their similar struggles, both have a special needs teen. Howorth decided to start a Facebook page to ask other moms in the area to donate gifts or Wal-Mart gift cards to help Wingler and her kids.
Yesterday the two met for the first time
Howarth and other moms are meeting at the Country Club Hills Wal-Mart at 5:30 today.
Anyone who wants to help the family is welcome. If you would like to donate a gift card via email you can log on tohttps://www.facebook.com/events/251984534960416/
